Path of Aspiration: A Prayer for Planetary Peace
Oh, assembly of the guru and the Three Jewels [of person, words and actions], and tutelary deities who are at the root of all accomplishments, and as expansive as the sea,
Oh, dakini sky dancers, dharma protectors, guardians of the doctrine, and the gods of wealth and those with power and strength,
Oh, local gods and all the elemental spirits, protectors of this place, local spirits, owners of this ground, along with the eight classes of demons and the lords of the earth who pervade this soil
May it be that peace and well being is extended and enlivened throughout this earthly world of sentient beings!
Oh, five deities of the household and of lineage, and the assemblage of nine protector deities,
The warrior deities and those of your navel, your mother, may they help you possess power and strength,
May those that grant longevity and merit, power and influence, and the vital energy of wind become your ally, increasing your renown,
And, may it be that peace and well being is extended and enlivened throughout this earthly world of sentient beings!
May the religion of the Buddha increase everywhere, in all ways and all directions
May benefactors of the Buddha's teachings flow forth from the dispeller of all obstacles
And may it be that peace and well being is extended and enlivened throughout this earthly world of sentient beings!
This prayer of aspiration was prepared by Tenzin of Lo Monthang, in the 9th month on the 11th day, in the Western year of 2008. (Sept. 11, 2008)
